QUICK AND PRETTY NOTE CARDS

I've had a set of Stampin' Up! Note cards in my drawer for a while now, and decided this week it was time to try them out - and I love them!

They are 3 1/2" x 5" so can be sent through the mail, and they are so easy and fun to put together. The set comes with 20 Whisper White or Very Vanilla cards and envelopes.


I used Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper (love the Baja Breeze and Soft Suede together!), the Pinking Hearts Border punch, the Scallop Oval and Large Oval punches, AND the new Decorative Label punch that is in the Holiday Mini Catalogue starting September 1st! You can use it alone to punch out many of the stamped images and sentiments, or layer it as I have done in this set.

I decided to make up ten cards and a coordinating box so I could give this set as a gift. The sentiments were all "thinking of you", "get well soon", or "thank you".

This card uses a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes:


And this card uses an image from Studio Sketches:

Once I had picked out a theme (the DSP plus the Pinking Hearts border punch tie them all together), the cards went together really quickly. Hope you like them!
